DETROIT (AP) -Allen Iverson apparently chose family and food over practice - and he'll be fined for it.
Iverson was the only player who didn't show up when the Detroit Pistons worked out on Thanksgiving.
Coach Michael Curry confirmed Iverson will be fined, will not start Friday night against the Milwaukee Bucks and might not play in the game for missing the practice.
After Detroit traded for the superstar, Iverson insisted he would do whatever Curry wanted him to and even mocked his famous rant about practice while playing for the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Pistons are 5-5 since acquiring Iverson from Denver for Chauncey Billups, Antonio McDyess and Cheikh Samb. McDyess and the Nuggets reached a buyout agreement and the power forward's agent said he will re-sign next month in Detroit.
